Failure to Success
Sandeep Maheshwari is an impatience man, but this is not his flaw, it is the secret of his success. He doesn’t like to wait. He wants to get at once what comes to his mind. He believes that if you are intent on something with determination, nobody can stop you from becoming a successful man. In a seminar, Sandeep told his story of becoming a successful man in life.
He says that In 2003, I started photography as a professional photographer. In the beginning, I was not a famous photographer. I used to make portfolios of models for 3000 to 4000 rupees. Most models returned and complained to me, “The directors do not accept a local photographer’s portfolio. They demand popular photographers’ portfolios.” I became so disappointed, and I understood that without fame no name. After two months, I went to Limca Book of Records and met ‘Vijya Gosh Manager Director of Limca Book of Records.’ I asked him, “How can I make a world record in photography?” She replied, “If you want to make a world record in photography, you click 10,000 shots in 12 hours without a pause.”
I came back to my friends and told them the whole story. They said, “This is impossible. You cannot do it.” I told them that I would do it. I announced an offer that I would make a portfolio of models for only 500 rupees. Hundreds of models contacted me, I hired 122 models, and I clicked 10,000 shots in 10 hours and 45 minutes and made the world record.

He did not have a girlfriend. When Sandeep went to Kirori Mal College, he saw Ruchi (his present wife). Sandeep fell in love with Ruchi at first glance, but he was afraid to tell her his feelings. One day, Sandeep purposed to Ruchi and she accepted his proposal. They became good friends as well as lovers. They went on date and make a lot of fun. Later on, they got married, and now they are spending a happy life. They have two children Hariday Maheshwari and Neha Maheswari.

At the age of 19, he went to a modeling institute and wanted to become a model. In the modeling industry, he found out that there was too much harassment and sexual fear. Sandeep did not like that and left the modeling. Sandeep had become intellectual, creative, and brainstorming.
In 2002, he joined a sales company NIS (National Institute of Sales and Marketing). He was earning almost 70-100 thousand rupees, and suddenly Sandeep decided to open his own sales company. he developed a calling company with his friends, but that did not work and they closed it within six months. Though it was a big disappointment for a young boy, Sandeep did not lose heart. He wrote a book on the subject of ‘Sharing’ at the age of 21.
Sandeep faced defeat simultaneously, but he bounced back with more powerful determination. Now he opened a photo shop and started photography for models. Sandeep’s business was not growing because he was not a famous photographer, and models complained to him that directors do not accept his portfolio. He did not like the bad feedback and decided to make a world record in photography.
